CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR
BELMORE BOOTS

UNDERSTANDING LEATHER

Pure Aniline Leather

Pure Aniline Leather used in the Belmore Boot Range, is the top grain of the leather hide that has been drum dyed for colour without any pigments applied to the surface. This leather will show the most natural charactistics of the hide, such as scars, growth marks and colour variations. The leather will develop a rich patina over time and give the most natural leather look of all leathers. Most of the lighter coloured leathers used in the Belmore Boot Range are Pure Aniline Leather.

Semi Aniline Leather

Semi aniline leather used in the Belmore Boot Range is basically the same as Pure Aniline Leather, but has a small amount of pigment top coat applied to the surface. This helps give the leather a more uniform look and starts to hide some of the natural features of the leather. It also aids in the durability of the leather. Most of the darker coloured leathers used in the Belmore Boot Range are Semi Aniline Leather.

Pigmented Leathers

Pigmented leather used in the Belmore Boot Range is still top grain leather, but has pigments and clear topcoats applied to the surface hiding most of the leathers natural charactisics. This produces a very uniform, durable finish that is resistant to wear and soiling.

Suede Leathers

Suede leather is produced from the underside of the hide. It is sanded and brushed to give a soft velvet like finish. This leather gives the leather a very soft texture, but can be more susceptible to wear compared to other leather types.

CARE AND CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS

Aniline leathers

Use a soft damp cloth or sponge with a small amount of neutral soap. Work soap into a light lather. Do not used excessive amounts of water. Rub lightly over the leather evenly, to ensure all parts of the upper have been cleaned to ensure consistency.
Wipe away any excess soap or fluid and allow to air dry
Lightly polish the leather with a soft dry cloth to return the shoe to its
original gloss level.
Treat the leather with basic leather conditioner.

Suede Leathers

Suede leathers should always be kept dry and moisture free as much as possible. Most soiling should be removed by lightly brushing with a appropriate suede brush. If the suede leather does get wet, try to soak up excessive water with soft cloth by dabbing lightly, do not rub. Then allow the leather to dry naturally. Once dry, brush lightly in one direction.
